Hewitt. He shi'l : Sou e time in 10 or '71, there was a great controversy about the imporia tion of steel to this country, and I was oppointed a merchant appraiser to assist the government appraiser, and I exam ined 57 cases altogether. The law al lows a merchant appraiser $3 a ca3e for every ease examined A few days after I gave a check for 8285 to the Children's Aid Society,lhat being the amount I was enticed to. Tnen I called upon air. by decker, in the Custom House, and pre sented my certificate for 57 cse3. He said that I waentitled to $35 only, at the rate of $5 a day. I said, "I think inot; I am entitled to 828a " lie retused to give me more than 83j I then told him that a merchant had to deposit 8100 a case for each case examined, and he replied, '-Well, what of ii V" I asked him. if the money was turned into the Treasury, and he told me that it was none of my business; that all I would get was $35 I said I intended making it my business, as I thought I was enti tled to the money, and I asked him be tween whom the money was divided. He replied, ' When the persons who are en titled to that money come along they will get it, and it is none of your busi ' ncss who they are." - I asked him what was done with the money .and he replied, "That is my business." Finding that I could get no satisfaction out of bim, I turned to Mr. Clinch and asked him about the matter. He said the rule of the Custom House was imperative; that all I Would receive was $5 a day, and not $5 a case. My next question to him was as to what was done with the other mon ey collected from the merchant, and he "eplicd in the same way as Lydecker.' I left with the impressiou that it :was my business to further investigate the mat ter, and I wrote to or called on seven merchants for whom I had acted as ap praiser, I discovered that they had to put down $10 for each case, and that they never got back a cent.' I assed them why they did not demand back the money, as it was not a legal fee and did not go into the Treasury. They said, Why, ray dear fellow, don't you see if we went to ' look after or claim money how unpleasant these fellows could make things for us in the Custom House. We might as well retire from business at once." - The Commission will re-examine Ly decker on the merchant appraiser fees in a few days. Col G E. Hall testified that political influence had demoralized the Custom House. Incompetent and illiterate per sons are put into positions and kept there by political influence, and fitness or qualifications are not necessary. No merchant would hire such men as clerks A. 15 Adams, or iroy, said: Was a candidate for a position in the Custom House in 1872, and was examined by the Civil Service Board.but was not appoint ed. - He was rated 70 to 80 per cent in geography, history and arithmetic, but only 40 per cent in "general aptitude."' Tbis he afterwards learned meant politi cal influence, and the candidates rating high therein were appointed. : . "C anKerlD the Bad.'

A GIGANTIC CHIME. One Hundred Miners Deliberate IF Polsoued SlxJjr ol Them In the Throes of Death. Chicago, May 14. The Tribune's special from Streator, 111., says the coal- miners of that place who struck . some time ago, aad whose places were sup plied with new men, and . who subse quently were for the most part taken' back, so that only 100 of the new men were retained, have for a long time been kept separate from the 'black-legs," as the novices were - called, lest trouble might occur from ' their jealousy. Of late, however, the two gangs have been allowed to mingle, and to day the rank ling hate found expression by soma of the old miners poisoning the food in the dinner-buckets of the new ones, and to-night some 6ixty of these unfortu nates are in the throfs of agony. Many of them will undoubtedly die from the effects of the poison, and the lives of all hang upon a thread. Arsenic was the drug used, but in some cases it was so plentifully administered as to conn teract its action. The whole matter is a mystery, and it is not even known how or in what article of food the dose was placed. ' ' -V " - ' - Republicans Divided In Wlscon . . sin. It is beginning to appear to the most superficial observer that the Republicans in Wisconsin are dividing on . the Presi dent's Southern policy ; and the division will prove, disastrous to the fortunes of the party. : Throughout the State the old Republican guard is sullen and reticent when Hayes and his measures toward the South are considered. They say but lit tle ; they are especially reserved before Strangers, Democrats and newspaper re porters ; but every day brings to the pub lic ear denunciations of Hayes from Re publican sources.
